Adeje is a municipality that offers hundreds of possibilities to enjoy. It has a wide range of activities to do in nature. From the coastal platform, dotted with small coves and beaches, the municipality ascends to the foothills of the Cañadas del Teide, although without a very deep slope.
Hiking in Adeje
One of the great pleasures that Adeje offers is the possibility of hiking. It is enough to put on your boots and walk along any of the paths that lead to the most beautiful and remote points of the municipality.
The paths of the summit speak to us with the vigor of a plethoric nature, of an exuberant pine forest, rich in pitch, with wide cereal plains. In them, sheep and goats were distributed, in the past, with agility and they did transhumance, to provide the best pastures for the cattle and of course, water, essential to live.
Currently, the roads of the middle are a support of the rural society of this municipality. They unite recollected and friendly nuclei. The comings and goings along these paths reminds those who walk it of numerous stories of dances, promises of faith, passing travelers, cattle dealers and many more.
